    Abstract

    DR. MIDDENDORF commences his treatise on Peru by a long preface detailing the circumstances which led him to choose that country for his home. Starting as the surgeon of an Australian emigrant ship from Hamburg in 1854, he narrates the incidents of the voyage, an epidemic of cholera and other irrelevant accidents included, until on the return journey, sick of the sea, he left his vessel in Valparaiso, and after some further wandering took up his residence in Peru, and was led by degrees to pay closer and closer attention to the land and people of his choice.

    Peru. Beobachtungen und Studien über das Land und seine Bewohner während eines 25-jährigen Aufenthalts.

    Von E. W. Middendorf. (Berlin: Robert Oppenheim, 1893–94.)
